Thrillseekers, Not So Much
My husband and I, we're not roller coaster people. We'd never bungee jump, ride a motorcycle, jump out of an airplane. The fast-edge thrill thing, it's just not our thing. I can say "our" with confidence because when it comes to fast things, David and I sought the shelter of familiarity with each other, not the thrill of otherness. Today, we took our kids, at their request, on the small roller coaster at Coney Island. I think it's called the Sea Serpent. It's pink, a very appealing pink. Let's just say none of us is in a rush to go back. In our family, when it comes to the fast thrills, there's a great deal of shelter on the sidelines.
